Is J. Cole Leaving Music in 2022, as Tiktok Claims?-Check Here for More Updates!
J. Cole’s fans are scared sick that the musician is retiring from music. But how reliable are these reports?
TikTok viewers have been posting reaction videos about J. Cole allegedly departing from the music industry over the last several days.
However, this is just another instance of a celebrity’s comment being misinterpreted in order to create a mountain out of a molehill.
Is J. Cole going to retire in 2022? Let us explain!
TikTok users think J. Cole is retiring
Following the release of his album The Fall Off last year, many TikTokers appeared to believe that J. Cole had retired from music.
Thanks to a tweet shared by the musician’s Team DREAMVILLE fan page, fans believe the singer will no longer be making songs.
“J. Cole has officially retired,” reads the tweet, which was posted on April 19, 2021.
“I’m officially declaring my retirement with the release of “The Fall Off” dropping tonight,” according to a screenshot of another tweet spotted on TikTok that appears to have been made from J. Cole’s official account. It’s been a fantastic ten years. It’s now up to you to be a fantastic father.”
No, the musician is not quitting the industry
The aforementioned rumors appear to be based on a statement made by J. Cole over a year ago.
J. Cole remarked in a May 2021 interview with Slam magazine on the possibility of retirement, “Oh, dude, I’m super comfortable with the potential of being done with this s**t.”
“However, I will never say, ‘Oh, this is my final record.’ Because I never know how I’ll feel in two, three, four, or ten years, but please believe me when I say that I’m doing all of this effort for a reason,” he continued.
This should clear up any confusion you may have about J. Cole’s retirement. He never said The Fall Off was his final album.
